5/365 Limekilns about 40
metres E of Hazard


Three limekilns. Circa late C18 and early C19. Kiln to west has date 1789.
Slate stone rubble. Left hand (west) kiln is round on plan with high pointed
arch opening on its east side and an elliptical arch opening on its west side.
The east opening has date 1789 and initials I.R. carved on jamb. Kiln
adjoining to right is semi-circular on plan with pointed arch opening. To
right, linked by length of high stone retaining wall is a third kiln, round
on plan, with segmental arched opening on west side and round arched opening
on east side.
The kilns are situated immediately south of Hazard quarry and are built into
a bank to allow top loading from the rear.
These kilns are especially interesting since one is a dated example. The
nearby Hazard Cottage (qv), originally a pair of cottages was probably built
to house quarrymen or lime burners. The cottage is dated 1792 and is nearly
contemporary with the kilns.
